No, that is not a requirement
jonathan01 saidMakes sense what you are saying, but allowing people to set their own prices will only make it worse.
Although I agree that allowing people to set their own prices is a scary thing, you have to surely see that allowing the massive 100 demo / website products up for sale is the exact same as price dumping unfortunately.
It’s just a way of getting around selling a WP theme for $4 when you include 10 (or more) complete sites for a little over $40 – therefore Envato handling the pricing does not secure you from price dumping – it’s basically the exact same sanctioned by the powers that be and they have already stated clearly they will not stop this happening.
In fact it’s actually perfect for Envato as they can allow this and still earn a good profit rather than allowing $4 items and having to sell multiple times – it’s the perfect plan. Again everything is set up for Envato’s benefit, not authors.Jonathan
No, widget ready areas don’t need to be declared in a plugin.
@ VIBEdigital: I think the point of this thread is really not criticizing you. You have your own opinion about themes, plugins and WordPress in general. You are obviously free to share your opinion in whatever way you want.
The issue here seems to be Envato sharing this post on their blog which, I have to agree, is not very elegant.
You say that “most of the cases are my changed files are not properly submitted to the reviewer” so the problem seems to be with the way that you are organizing your information. On the latest submissions I’ve had more rejections related with technical stuff, but never took so much time.
This is a general forum… To get support for that product please check this link http://themeforest.net/item/north-one-page-parallax-wordpress-theme/8454561/support
Where did you buy the theme? To get support that seems to be the first step. Even if you are placing your questions on the wrong place and eventually with the wrong account
